Club: Baked - Soft Candy Caramels

The latest round of Club: Baked is being hosted by Teri at The Freshman Cook, and she has selected Soft Candy Caramels.  I have to admit, I was a little worried about trying to make these.....I was convinced that I would overcook the caramel, and instead of a lovely soft and chewy candy, I would end up with something of a tooth breaker!

Well.....I needn't have worried.....the directions were perfect, and the caramels came out so wonderfully soft and chewy!  Even the hubby, who is not a caramel-y kind of guy, thought these were fantastic.  Another win for the boys at Baked!

There aren't any fancy ingredients.......you just need to have a candy thermometer, and make sure that it is working (so you don't over or under cook the caramel).  You'll be rewarded with something sooooo much better than any store-bought caramels.  And the recipe makes a big batch......so you can pass them out to friends and family.  They were perfect bagged up and tied with ribbon.....I handed them out to friends at out son's Valentine's Day show.

Check out The Freshman Cook for the recipe.....and go to Club: Baked to see how the other bakers did........Enjoy!!

  1. Yours look so pretty. I love your packaging! After a few thermometer issues, mine were delicious, but I didn't cut them correctly, and I ended up with a mish mash of sizes. But we loved them too!

  10. Your caramels came out great! I agree that the recipe was super easy. I was a little worried about them not working out. I like the wrapping you used. I am going to do that next time. I just posted mine today. I gave them out on V-Day too, but just now had a chance to post!
